"Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday criticized President TrumpDonald TrumpJudge rules Alaska governor unlawfully fired lawyer who criticized Trump Giuliani led fake electors plot: CNN Giuliani associate sentenced to a year in prison in campaign finance case MORE for mocking Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
“The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides. Last night he chose to blow it," Kilmeade said on "Fox & Friends," adding that the FBI could be concluding its investigation into Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday.
"I wonder about the wisdom, as much as the crowd loved it, I wonder about the wisdom tactically of him doing that.”
Kilmeade said that there were clear holes in Christine Blasey Ford's allegations, but cautioned the president against going after her publicly.
Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a high school party in the 1980s. She and Kavanaugh testified last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her claims.
Kavanaugh has fiercely denied the allegation. He's also denied sexual misconduct claims from two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.
Trump on Tuesday mocked Ford's testimony at a rally in Mississippi — a move that drew laughter and applause from the crowd.
"'How did you get home?'" Trump said, imitating Ford's testimony. "'I don't remember.' 'How'd you get there?' 'I don't remember.' 'Where is the place?' I don't remember.' 'How many years ago was it?' 'I don't know.'"
"'What neighborhood was it in?'" he continued, as the crowd cheered. "'I don't know.' 'Where's the house?' 'I don't know.' 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' 'I don't know, but I had one beer.' 'That's the only thing I remember.'"

"To discuss something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right, it’s just not right. I wish he hadn’t done it. It’s kind of appalling," Flake said on NBC's "Today" on Wednesday.
The FBI is currently conducting a background investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. The probe could conclude by Wednesday, according to reports.
